Reviewing documenta 14
After the closing of the hotly debated documenta 14 at both its sites, let’s dicuss an exhibition that has been a singularly risky enterprise:
with a highly subtle curatorial stance renouncing signature works that has questioned documenta’s role as a showcase for contemporary art, an anthropologisation of artistic practice that has been critizied as re-colonisation, and a somewhat elusive, but highly politicized romanticism asking for a reinstitution of the body in conceptual and post-conceptual art while often hovering under individual radars of perception.
What can we learn from the failures and successes of documenta 14?
